Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

here are a few characters to learn today:

水  water --> it's easy to remember because  it started off as 3 lines, one for each of the river banks, and one for the river, like this

巛  which does means river

土  means earth  -->  it started as a flower growing out of the earth, but lost its petals at the top

it is almost identical to the ideogram for the following (but I haven't been able to find the history of this one - where the 1st horizontal bar is longer)

士  means scholar

I will try to do a re-capitulation and quiz if people are interested.  so far, I think that makes about 20 characters!
